lol thanks for the tips guys, sounds like the XT60's should be good for me to use, I guess I'll stay with the 1 battery for 4 motors and do some load tests, chassis is pretty much done so I can test i ...

Alright I'm convinced Razz
I think I'm set on my way now, now to start building (and decide on whether to leave the clutch on the drill gearboxes)!

Thanks for the quick reply Glen.

I'll take your advice on the timing belt. Depending on weight of everything I may or may not go for 4-wheel drive.

I do like the look of the P60's and will inevitably use them at some point, sooner rather than later is probably better!
